  • Mariners 2, White Sox 4 [box]: Miguel Olivo was the player of the game for the Mariners. He drove in the team's only two runs in second inning when he blasted a 450-foot home run to deep center field. It was his third home run of the season. Game recap and analysis. Next game: Today, Seattle (24-31) at Los Angeles Angels (28-27), 7:05 p.m. PT, ROOT Sports, 9 games back.
  • Storm 65, Sparks 67 [box]: L.A. Sparks rookie Nneka Ogwumike hit the game-winning shot, an off-balance runner with 2.1 seconds left on the clock. The Storm were led by Katie Smith who scored 19 points, Sue Bird chipped in 12 points and six assists. Should all of these losses have asterisks since Lauren Jackson is not playing?
